/ / News, Walkaway

Here’s a reminder that you can pre-order a signed first edition hardcover of Walkaway, my first novel for adults since 2009, which William Gibson called “A wonderful novel” and Edward Snowden called “a reminder that the world we choose to build is the one we’ll inhabit” and Kim Stanley Robinson called “a utopia is both more thought-provoking and more fun than a dystopia” and Neal Stephenson called “the Bhagavad Gita of hacker/maker/burner/open source/git/gnu/wiki/99%/adjunct faculty/Anonymous/shareware/thingiverse/cypherpunk/LGTBQIA*/squatter/upcycling culture, zipped down into a pretty damned tight techno-thriller with a lot of sex in it.”

I signed 2,900 early copies of the first edition, and I’ll be visiting 20 US cities as well as cities across Canada and the UK this spring to read from and discuss the book.

Happily, today’s Booklist contained a starred review by Regina Schroeder, who called it “memorable and engaging” and “ultimately suffused with hope.” This is the book’s second starred review — last December’s Kirkus reviews called it “A truly visionary techno-thriller that not only depicts how we might live tomorrow, but asks why we don’t already.”

The book drops on April 25, and I’m so damned excited I can barely contain myself!
